Tweets of the day:

@GavinDuffy Amazing @ryanair ‘s efforts to be nice = big profits. Airline forecast to top €1 BILLION profit in 2016.

@tazmorano 20 helicopters will be in operation to bring people to & from Galway racecourse this week. Still 329 less than in 2007! #TheTigerIsBack.

@winglets747 British Airways ending Entebbe flights follows previous African route network cuts to Dar es Salaam and Lusaka.

@winglets747 Interesting that ANA for Sydney will operate red-eyes in both directions. JAL daylight return was a weakness w/ few alternatives – until now.
